    Need some advice. I’ve got a rather ancient Laserjet 4 Plus that I just got printing well, but it’s still prone to jam with 24lb+ paper.

    This printer is 26 years old and the plastic is starting to become brittle and fail. It also has 2MB of memory.

    So I’m trying to decide what laser printer to get. I’d really like to get a higher end…[Read more]

    • I have a Laserjet 4100dtn that I love. I did a little write up on it in the Zine Making forum. The DTN has a duplexer for double sided printing, and a network card. Pretty spiffy workhorse printer. Also they made routine maintenance a lot easier in the 4100 series compared to the LJ4. Toner’s still cheap and you can fit an entire ream in the paper…[Read more]

      If handwriting is legible, It can look so beautiful in a zine. If handwriting is messy, it can be a nightmare to read. I guess we all know…[Read more]
